Saving Money For College

I suggest buying savings bonds for an easy way to double your money. I also suggest either saving all your spare change or just a specific coin of your choosing (like saving all quarters). We saved coins for one year and just put $651.62 in the bank. I would also encourage you to look up free colleges - there are some out there. Scholarships and grants are abundant, too.

I never thought my family could afford to send me and my brother to college, but we both received grants and scholarships and he got a track scholarship. If my child's grades don't improve soon, I won't have to worry about college for him, unless he can get a sport or music scholarship. They don't care so much about his grades.
